"Somethin' Stoopid - The Cactus"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

I refer in this to the 70's Aussie movie "Picnic at Hanging Rock," which may be a little esoteric outside Oz
I beautified the starry nights so THEY would stimulate the artist Vincent van Gogh
and then I built the Himalayas higher so they'd glisten in the even-ing snow
The beauty of a snowflake didn't happen without centuries of practice
but then I went and spoiled it all by making somethin' stoopid like the cactus

I can see it in your eyes that you despise them as you drive along the freeway
I've even tried to flog them off to other worlds in ads on Heaven's Ebay

I hung a rock beside a picnic ground so girls can disappear mysteriously
and when I built my masterpiece, the platy-pus, nobody took me seriously
the Aurora Bore-alis was so glorious it silenced my detractors
but then I went and spoiled it all by making somethin' stoopid like the cactus

No matter what I do, they look ridiculous to you - and that's a fact, yes......(sigh)
so why'd I go and spoilt it all by building somethin' stoopid like the cactus

the cactus
the cactus
the cactus

John - yes I thought the film was a bit ponderous first time, altho I watched it recently and loved it.............Kristof - you and ME! - I absolutely fell in love with her - Anne Lambert from Class of '75 - never ever saw her again (just like in the film) - I think she eschewed fame and fortune and lives alone in a beachside retreat (or that's the future I've made up about her) - we're on a wavelength Kristof! (I've gotta check out your stuff).................Airfarcewon, thankyou heaps (fact,yes and cactus was the solution to my final problem - I wasn't happy with it so I'm relieved it worked............Lucid, good on you, thanks for the 5s.........Joe - thanks, I ran the risk of offending the religious, but then I remembered that film "Oh God"

Excellent! 555! Now you can write "Percocet And Cactus".

Look Johnny D, that's it! I've been resisting but now I've just gotta get my dictionary out..... what the f... is percocet? I'm sure we don't have it in Oz...and thanks for the 5s (hmmm that "percocet and cactus" challenge is just sitting there tho isn't it)
